Transitional Housing

Amount of funds: US$ 2.32 million
Implementation period: December 2006 - August 2007
Implementing agency: International Organization for Migration (IOM) and Cooperative Housing Foundation (CHF )
Partner agency: World Bank
Area of work: earthquake affected Central Java and Yogyakarta

The projects aimed to provide safe and durable transitional housing to eligible earthquake-affected families while permanent houses are rebuilt; thereby promoting early resumption of household activities. The project was completed and closed after the transitional housing needs had successfully been met.

Results Achieved:
  • Over 95% of beneficiary households felt that temporary housing enabled them to resume their normal household activities (e.g. children can study; family members can conduct economic activities at home; protection from rain and adverse weather conditions).
  • A total of 4,434 families received and constructed transitional houses; IOM provided 1,586 and CHF provided 2,848 transitional houses that conformed to the pre-agreed specifications.
  • Beneficiary satisfaction with constructed temporary housing was very high: 92-97% for men and 94-100% for women in Yogyakarta and Central Java.
  • 57% of beneficiaries continue to use t-shelters as an extension of their newly built permanent houses or other facilities such as kitchen, warehouse, mini-store and animal stalls. 17% of beneficiaries utilized components/materials of their t-shelter when constructing their permanent houses.
